Outcome of CSD Steering Group meeting of 2 February
The CSD Steering Group (CSG) met on 2 February to discuss the new T2S migration plan endorsed during last December’s meeting.
The plan has been slightly revised. The Baltic CSDs (EVK – Estonia, LCD – Latvia and LCVPD – Lithuania) will now migrate settlement activities to the T2S platform in September 2017.
The CSG noted the success of the recent pre-migration rehearsals for Wave 2 and Wave 3 (including the ESES CSDs). These rehearsals have increased the confidence in the ability of the CSDs and the Eurosystem to meet the revised schedule.
The migration plan still remains subject to the ESES migration plan being agreed to by the supervisory authorities in the Netherlands, as well as approval by the ECB Governing Council, now expected by mid-March.
